Wow. I gave most of 2/28/69 a run over the course of this week based on this post, and while it's still in progress, I regret nothing! Did the first set as my workout music riding a spinning bike. Then sat with a smoke for the Other One. Wow is that a fantastic version. Then last night the Dark Star suite thru the 11 (what a capital R Raucous St Stephen!! TELL!!!). I'm hoping today to listen to Death Don't and then work out through the Alligator/Caution jam. It's amazing listening to this date that not a single track made it onto Live Dead. Just raw amazing primal dead stuff here.

Yup! strat prefers 3/2, as do many; but I made a "car disk" back up of this night for exactly the reasons you outline. Along w mando's favs from a week or so earlier in Vallejo, and then the "other" Fillmore shows of 11th/12th two weeks earlier, Feb is a damn good month, proving as we so often observed, practice makes perfect, even when you're the band that lives on the myth that every night was free form, eh?

I think 2-28 is the best show of the early era. The Alligator jam elevates this a notch above the other shows. <BR><BR>Even Latvala had it right: "The best and most exciting G.D. show ever is without a doubt 2/28/69- Fillmore West!!!"

Ha--I may have seen that prior, but forgotten...good to know, for an early era fanatic like me especially.

I was gifted digital access to the entire 69 Fillmore west run after it was released on discs, but as is often the case, i attempted to listen and compare and such too close in time between shows, and they began to run together in my head. So while I remember tidbits like really loving the Other One that opens 3-1, and hearing the Dark Star/Stephen of 2/27 that's Live Dead famous and other bits, i often can't differentiate between the shows in the four night run. Having not listened to 69 at all in what's probably a few months now, this just jumped all over me as the raw real deal. I finished it last night, doing a half hour on the spinning bike with Alligator/drums/jam/Caution. Awesome stuff
